Rather than a game update this week, I will post my list of games for the remainder of 1994. This begins with a list I cobbled together from various sources; the bold games are the ones I'm actually going to play. This is the last major release period for the PC Engine -- there are 6 in this block of games. But after this, there are only 6 games in all of 1995 and just one in 1996. So anyone who is wishing I would stop playing these PC Engine games and focus on SFC will get their wish soon.
- The Glory of Heracles IV: Gift from the Gods
- Startling Odyssey 2 (PCE)
- Basted (PCE) - I initially had this on the list but it does not qualify as an ARPG for me; there's no equipment, levels, or items. It's more an adventure/actino game.
- Feda: Emblem of Justice - SRPG, already done on the other blog.
- Ilvanian Castle - I've seen some places categorize this as an SRPG but to me it's just a strategy game; all of your units are nameless grunts you summon.
- Shin Megami Tensei if...
- Magna Braban: Wandering Heroes
- Monster Maker Kids: I want to be a king! -- I'm skipping all of these "RPG board game" hybrids because as far as I
can tell, they have no real story mode or plot and most of them can't be
played solo. If anyone knows of one of these games (for Super Famicom) that can be played solo, or that does have some kind of plot, let me know.
- Ultima VII Black Gate - English release, also a horrible port of a great PC game.
- We're Hiring Heroes Now: Seconds - Same comment as Ilvanian Castle above.
- Gotzendeinner (PCE) - Some sites list this as an RPG but it's more of an action/puzzle game.
- Cosmic Fantasy 4 Part 2 (PCE) - I did part 1 but I don't see the point of trying part 2; part 1 wasn't that good.
- Aretha II: Ariel's Mysterious Journey
- Breath of Fire II
- Dokapon 1-2-3: Friendship that Calls a Storm (RPG boardgame)
- The Last Battle
- Sugoroku Quest++ (RPG boardgame)
- Lodoss War II (PCE)
- Albert Odyssey 2 - SRPG, done on other blog.
- Daikaiju Monogatari
- Power of the Hired - SRPG, done on other blog.
- Ryu Knight
- Fangs of Alnam (PCE)
- Dual Orb II
- Travelers (PCE)
